Shediac Suggestions

Thank you for the suggestion of Bayou. It was quite good. Bun was a little larger than expected but it was good as well.
Cheers!

Calgary Night Out

Hello Calgary Hounds. I am hosting a work get together in 3 weeks time on a Saturday night. I would like a upscale casual restaurant with interesting food and drinks and the ability to chill afterwards (like a pool table or music). Any thoughts? For about 10 people. Thanks!

Shediac Suggestions

I will be in Shediac late Sunday afternoon and am looking for a feed of local seafood. Lobster, lobster roll, fried clams/oysters etc. I checked the boards but there is nothing current on Shediac. Any suggestions?

Chowfind: An authentic tasting 'Instant' Singapore Laksa Noodle La Mien good enough for Chowhounders!

The Miliken store only has the Curry...I bought 4 and there were only 4 left.

Whitby/Durham restaurants that don't suck

I also tried the Veal Sandwiches at Marashino yesterday. The veal was so tender not like most others that are a bit like leather. I will ask for more sauce next time and some hot peppers. This place really is a GEM!!

I just had lunch at Maraschino yesterday. We tried 3 pies (Margarita, Spicy Sausage, and Grilled Veggie) All 3 were excellent. Great atmosphere and VERY friendly owners/servers. I would not have found this place without you hidpage...thank you. Finally a very good thin crust pie maker in Durham. I will be back to try the veal sandwiches. They looked really good.

C Hounder's, I am taking my family to Italy in May. This is our first visit. I will be in Milan, Venice, Florence, and Rome. Any can't miss places you would recommend? Price is a consideration but not the only requirement. Thanks Much.

Toronto's worst dives

Thank you for this. The biggest dive ever was Roberta's. On jarvis just south of Dundas on the East Side. They had terry cloth tables in order to wipe up the blood. A pool table that was dangerous, and cheap beer to get you to Larry's or the Gasworks.Crazy. Glad to be alive now.

Toronto's worst dives

I remember the Rondun. I saw many a bands there. I remember the draft was very cheap and in small 5-6 oz glasses. You would order entire trays for the table. It is still not around is it?

Toronto's worst dives

Loved the Gasworks but I loved Larry's Hideaway even more. Great music, great soundsystem and ugly as hell. The rooms upstairs were something to behold.
Every night tht place was filled with punks, goths, metalheads, and every musician in town looking for a break.

The Old Toronto Restaurants you make the wishes for the comeback

I forgot about Napolean's what a ground breaking place. The one and only time I had pernod and lobster that was balanced.
I also loved Dante's for their Risotto.

I think they called it the Fast Lane Burger. I have done the same to no avail. And their Caesars in mason jars was a radical concept back then!!

There is nothing in Whitby/Oshawa for what you seek. Scarborough or Markham is closest. I would also say there is no great Thai, Indonesian, Indian, or Vietnamese. Good BBQ, Burgers, wings, donairs......

Whitby/Durham restaurants that don't suck

I just found the Latin grocery store...SCORE! It sure beats a trip to Kensington. Thank you. Also I found a great cheese store in Ajax...yes it does exist! It's called Country Cheese Company and is located in the McDonalds plaza at 289 Kingston Rd E #3, Ajax, ON L1Z 0K5. What a find! Artisinal cheeses from all over with super friendly staff. The only one in Durham.

"East Coast" Style Donairs in Toronto?

There is a place in downtown Oshawa called Down East Donairs and they are authentic and very very good. They also stock other Maritime favourites like Ganong chocolates.

Cheap and Cheerful Dim Sum in Markham

Tried out Vince today. As advertized caitlink! Food was cheap and cheerful.....not the best I have had but very decent indeed. A good everyday stop. I was a little worried after reading some Yelp and Urbanspoon reviews about the bad service but we were very pleasantly surprised. Har Gow was good, Rice Flour roll was very generous with the bbq pork, Duck was very well seasoned....not too much 5 spice, and the bok choy well prepared. Thanks!!

Cheap and Cheerful Dim Sum in Markham

Had lunch at Full House. Restaurant was dirty, washroom even worse. Had staples of Wu Gok, Har Gow, Sui Mai, and Rice Flour roll. Very disappointing. Wu Gok had a medicinal taste...almost ammonia like, Har Gow were all broken and skin had a dirty water odour, Sui Mai was ok, Rice Flour roll was all rice flour roll and no beef at all. Maybe new ownership? Cannot be related to Casa's. My search continues.

The traffic is not an issue at Pacific mall when you can navigate the Ding Tai Fung parking lot :0 I have seen Ginger and Onion and have never gone in as well as the Mui Garden...worth a try. Thanks.
